Welcome to Avon School

Avon School is a primary school catering for children from Year 1-8. Avon is situated south of Stratford.

Avon School is a vibrant learning community. We encourage our learners, both students and adults, to demonstrate our S.T.A.R.S values (Self Management, Teamwork, Aroha, Respect and Success) in all that we do.

There is a strong emphasis on literacy and numeracy as well as opportunities for education outside the classroom.

We believe that our learning environment truly prepares our students for their future as 21st century life long learners.
